The calm after the storm

We have had some crazy turbulent weather this week. Yesterday evening around 5 we had a front come through with powerful thunderstorms churning up tornadic activity in many parts of the Chicago area. It even set off the sirens for a short period downtown, which doesn't happen too often, but also happened on friday. Luckily, the majority of the storm passed through fairly quickly and left an amazing colorful sunset.

Today, I am off to the western suburbs to give a lecture and teach at the DeKalb Country Quilters Guild and the sun is shining with no threat of storms, yay!


  1. I'm visiting your fair city and experienced the downtown part of the thunderstorm. We were planning on walking down Michigan Avenue and dining out as it was our 43rd anniversary. As we were about to leave our hotel, down came the rain! We decided to dine in the hotel restaurant instead. Thanks for sharing the sunset as we didn't see that downtown.

  2. What a fabulous photo!!!

  3. i think the photo is awesome too, but must confess, i don't care for wild weather.

  5. Thanks Annette, I took the photo. The skies were amazing, all evening it was the most colorful sky I think I had ever seen. A neighbor told me that golden glow is typical after tornado weather.
